so I was watching a "cackle hatchery" you tube vid and he warns males must be separated at 6 months. sounds like they are the real deal just over$9 each with a min order of 15

Ok here I'm gonna give you lesson, it took me a while to figure this out too but usually hatchery birds arnt the kind of game you want for the sole reason that they are hatchery birds, now I don't I've never tried cackle hatchery but that's usually the case. If I we're you I would got and try to trade something or buy a few from a reputable breeder if you realy want to get into games but if you just want some low key birds than I'd say go ahead with the hatchery birds. Now if you wanted the real deal you should prolly go to a breeder for your birds.

the people I know out here don't have black game why is black so rare? not only that , I bought a couple of game hens "dirt cheap" and correct me if im wrong but no game should have any white on their earlobes right?
